Carolina Rose

(A Triolet)

.

.

This wild red rose brings bold beauty

To the hedges and open fields.

She’s a Carolina cutey.

This wild red rose brings bold beauty,

A pure prickly southern gypsy.

So beware of the spikes she wields.

This wild red rose brings bold beauty

To the hedges and open fields.

Author Notes

This Rose is a wildflower known as the Carolina Rose (Rosa Carolina)that is fairly common across the parts of the Us and Canada from the Mississippi eastward. It can be found in white, pink, or red along road sides, hedges, fields, and prairies. In fact, it also known as the Pasture Rose. It can be distinguished from other wild roses by its very thin straight spikes along its stem. Other roses have thicker curved spikes.

  This is part of my wildflower series.

There is also a popular Bluegrass singer named Carolina Rose, who took her name from this flower and her own Southern heritage.


This poem is a Triolet. 

A Triolet is a poem with a fixed format.

It a syllable structure of 84844444. It is a poem of only eight lines with a rhyme scheme of only to rhymes (a and b)that can be represented as follows:

ABaAabAB, where the fourth and seventh lines are the same exact line as the first. The eighth line is the same exact line as the second (This is represented by the capital letters shown). So, it is very important to compose the first two lines carefully so that the entire poem flows well and is enhanced by the repeats.
